"Welcome to Obamaland, the Socialist Paradise", by James Delingpole
Got this in an e-mail from Human Events. If you aren't on their mailing list, you should be!
Dear Fellow Conservative:
If the inauguration of President Barack Obama fills you with dread rather than elation, you're not alone.
In fact, you're exactly at one with James Delingpole -- who knows exactly where America is heading: into a morass of sprawling government that will slowly start suffocating our economy, our liberties, and our culture.
How does Delingpole know? Because he's seen it all before in Great Britain.
You might as well call it socialism, says Delingpole, because that's what it is. In Britain it came in under the smiling face of Tony Blair, and has left the British bulldog castrated, whimpering, and sick. In America it's coming under the vibrant, youthful guise of Barack Obama.
But the result will be same: The brave, independent American eagle will become the American turkey, oven-basted by the nanny state of Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid.
Now, in Welcome to Obamaland: I Have Seen Your Future, and It Doesn't Work, Delingpole -- whose laugh-out-loud wit has made his fame as a British political commentator -- tells us how bad things could really get.
"Think of me as the hero of H.G. Wells's The Time Machine, bursting into your present, my clothes all tattered and torn, and on my face an expression of dire horror and impending doom," writes Delingpole. "For I am afraid I have a terrible message to impart. I have just seen the future. Your future. And I'm sorry to say it sucks."
Hilarious, witty, impassioned, and perceptive, Welcome to Obamaland will have you laughing through your tears and taking courage from the eternal truth of conservative principles.
